Ascension Athletic Association requires all families to volunteer for a 4-hour volunteer shift during the fall through spring sports seasons (school year). Families have the option when registering to pay a buyout fee of $100 that will cover all kids AND all sports for that sports/school year.
Exemptions to the requirement are:
- Registered Head Coaches and one registered Assistant Coach per team **
- Program Directors and Coordinators
- Board Members
** Please note: it is the responsibility of the individual to register as a coach for the respective sport as well as complete the coaching requirements for the work duty to be approved.
If you choose NOT to do the buyout, then an adult representative from your family is expected to serve 4 hours in a volunteer role. Please refer to this link often to view volunteer opportunities. It doesn't matter if your child is playing soccer and you want to do a volleyball volunteer shift...and it doesn't matter if your child plays a fall sport and you want to do a winter sport volunteer shift. As long as you complete ONE work duty shift for your family before the end of the school year, you will meet the requirement.
You will be assessed the $100 buyout fee IF:
- You sign up for a volunteer slot and do not give 48 hours cancellation notice
- You sign up for a volunteer slot and do not show up
- You do not serve a 4-hour shift prior to April 30th for each school year.
